requests for review from six Argentine exporters included in the

from a producer/exporter that was not included in petitioners' requests 
for review.

    \1\ Petitioners requested Mielar S.A. (Mielar) and Compania 
Apicola Argentina (CAA) as separate entities. However, in a previous 
segment of this proceeding, the Department treated these two 
companies as a single entity.

    On February 2, 2007, the Department initiated a review on the ten

explained above Mielar and CAA are currently being treated as a 
single entity based on decisions made in a previous segment of this 
proceeding.

review of the following companies: Agroin Las Piedras Ltda., Seabird

party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request

part. The petitioners made a timely withdrawal of their requests for an 
administrative review within the 90-day deadline, for the following 
companies: Agroin Las Piedras Ltda., Seabird Argentina S.A. and 
Ultramar Argentina S.A. Because the petitioners were the only party to
